the total for the entire month of october. president obama talked up the law's benefits in washington today, and brushed aside rising disapproval in public polls. >> more people without insurance have gained insurance, more than three million young americans who've been able to stay on their parents' plan, the more than half a million americans and counting who are poised to get coverage starting on january 1, some for the very first time. and it is these numbers, not the ones in any poll, that will ultimately determine the fate of this law. >> woodruff: republicans said the new numbers on enrollment are cold comfort to millions who've had their coverage canceled or face higher premiums. 9-1-1 phone calls from sandy hook elementary school, during last year's mass shooting, were made public today. the seven recordings revealed police dispatchers in newtown, connecticut, urging callers to take cover, even as gunfire echoed. 20 children and six educators were shot to death by 20-year- old adam lanza. a judge ordered the audio material released under the state's freedom of information law. the

. remember being so excited when president obama talked about his commitment. that died and there's comprehensive support for that as well as other state-to-state initiatives. i wonder if you have the comment on the power of states uniting around infrastructure and if you see that as one of the economic drivers? i think we all know about innovation, creativity, and most things are economic drivers, if you can't move from place to place and be mobile, that's really an obstacle for our business community. >> going to tuck that away. we have state and local leaders. we did a phone call in the last few days. we had lieutenant governor, secretary of the state, senators, representatives, mayors on the line, probably numbers 300 plus. we're getting going. we're doing this every month, having a known call and sharing ideas in the runup to next july 23rd where as evan said, we're going to have the first ever of its kind state and local gathering. be sure to read that. we have some no labels people here in the audience. raise your hands. feel free to talk to any of them about the questions

example of the obama administration tripping over its own feet? because here was an opportunity to engage with pope francis, who is a pope talking about poverty, talking about the things most catholics care about, issues of income inequality, things that the obama administration cares about. >> but how's this conflict with that? >> they allow themselves to get beat up for it. it was a dumb move not to position this better. $1.4 million isn't going to do much -- >> charlie, do you really believe -- you just said it, i guess you do, that the president's blown a chance to salute the good social policies and statements of the pope? you still can't do that? >> what i'm saying is that catholic voters are the swing voters in america. >> you're speaking my language. >> they're a complex electorate. you know that better than anyone, chris. but in this case, i really think the obama administration made a logical choice. it's about real estate, as you said, about savings, small savings. don't you think they could have packaged this a little bit better and not allowed the republicans to open the door

talking to our viewers about president obama. should he fire somebody about the rollout of the health-care website? i think people ought to and think about every major project that has sector, to the private as well as in the public sector. it is impossible to start something as big as this without problems. boeing or yout can look at microsoft. when they introduce a new operating system. windows 8, windows 6 -- there is always problems. this focusing on the first couple of months on everything work simplyt quite is losing sight of the forest through the trees. i think that the president could in the end make a decision about that -- if there was somebody who is egregious and their behavior that is one thing. if they were doing their best, i see any kind of glitch as a reason to be fired. you are going to have them. is -- it is impossible to do this perfectly. you were critical of the president's chief of staff and you andunication with others about informing you of on with the law, before it was rolled out. has that improved? guest: tremendously. part of saying it is so they weerstan

's paranoid talk. of course you can trust obama care. in the state of california you can't. the obama care exchanges have been passing out personal information to insurance companies which then market that information using that information, they market their services. >> these aren't even people that signed up. these are people that took a cursory glance, maybe filled out part of an application. >> they're getting phone calls from insurance companies saying, hey, we understand you're looking for insurance. how can we be of assistance. would you like to pay us? peter levy, covered california, listen to this quote, see if you are comforted by this. he's using comforting words. he said i can imagine some people may be upset, but i can see a lot of people will be comforted and relieved at getting the help that they need by navigating a confusing process. >> and the reason they're saying they're doing this is because, of course, they're lined on their enrollment deadlines that they're trying to meet. also they're saying that we're not giving out any personal information like social security in

, everybody talks about president obama. they are blaming president obama for this and that. he cannot do it alone. he cannot do anything by himself. thank you. guest: on your last point, that is right. there has to be a bipartisan solution to our budget problems. aspect about the budget deal seems to be developing, it would be an instance in which the democrats and republicans have agreed on something and the white house is presumably ok with. it would be something that has bipartisan support. i the food stamp question, think food stamp costs went up with the economy. thatthe economy went down, raises foodstamp expenditures because more people need the assistance. some of that is coming down. there is still a need out there. the farm bill is being debated on capitol hill and how much food stands would be cut, there is a big difference between the house plan and the senate plan. it is not clear what the cut wouuld bld be. people think there is a lot of fraud and abuse. the economy is improving. some people perceive less of a need. they are going to work something out. they are far apart.

-- verifyble. when this bill was being talked about again, back in 2009, shortly after mr. obama became our 44th president, it was estimated that there was something like 47 million people in this country, mr. speaker, who through no fault of their own except couldn't afford it didn't have health insurance. well, when you really go through those numbers and i have a book with me that i'm going to reference and i want to give proper attribution, the name of the book is "the top 10 myths of american health care: a citizen's guide." maybe it could be a patient's guide. and this is written by sali pipes -- sally pipes. and she talks about in this book, she talks about that 47 million. something like 15 million of hose 47 million make more than $50,000 a year. indeed, some make more than $75,000 a year, mr. speaker. and they've just decided that they don't want health insurance, that they will pay as they go. and there's nothing wrong with that. i don't advise it. i think everybody should at least have catastrophic coverage. but be that as it may, this is america. we have to insist on enjoying our

we talk. this is interesting. because the obama administration put a lot of pressure on prime minister netanyahu of israel he said, you, mr. prime minister, have to agree to release over 1,000 murderous thugs, including murderers who murdered an american, before the palestinians will come to the table to negotiate with you on the israeli-palestinian conflict. that was our president who put pressure on the prime minister. you've got to release thugs in order to negotiate. we would put that kind of pressure on israel and we wouldn't put that kind of pressure on iran? you see, that's why, mr. speaker, i ask the question -- did the negotiators forget which nation they were negotiating for? because it looks to me like the score is pretty clear. united states zero, iran made out on the deal. the sad thing about that final score, and let's hope it's not the final score, is that again, the hinge of history turns. and if you have an iran with a nuclear weapon, it won't be just iran. you will explode proliferation, saudi arabia will have a nuclear weapon, egypt will have a nuclear weapo

, even though the obama administration had talked about how much al-qaeda had been dismantled since the death of bin lad en, do americans need to worry now that al-qaeda does seem to be gaining ground in the middle east? >> i think the americans ought to be very concerned about the increasing capability. while the u.s. government has started to parse their words, saying we only met core al-qaeda in pakistan and afghanistan, the fact is that the franchisees, the smaller groups of al-qaeda represent a clear and present danger not only to the countries and governments in the middle east but also that of the united states. >> general, thank you. >> commuter trains will roll again today on a normal schedule past the reopened stop in the bronx, the scene of sunday's fatal derailment in new york city. the train to derailed featured a system that can warn the engineer of a potential accident and apply the brakes, but the system was not in the front cab where william rockefeller was at the controls. it was installed in the locomotive, which was pushing the train from the back. >> highly radi
